Northern Irish tenor Andrew Irwin studies at the „Hochschule für Musik und Theater Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy“ under the tutelage of Prof. KS Roland Schubert.

Operatic highlights of 2017 included Tamino/Die Zauberflöte with Worcester Opera, , and Basilio/Curzio in Clonter Opera's "Le Nozze di Figaro". Andrew was involved in Welsh National Youth Opera’s 2016 award winning production of Peter Maxwell Davies’ “Kommilitonen!”, playing the role of ‘Christoph Probst’. Andrew will sing the role “Il Conte Almaviva” in September, touring Leipzig, Weimar, Wittenberg, Hilburghausen and Germersheim.

Equally comfortable on the concert platform, Andrew’s oratorio repertoire includes Evangelising in Schütz’ “Historia Der Geburt Jesu Christi” in the Altes Rathaus, Leipzig, and Stainer’s “Crucifixion”, closer to home, in Cardiff and Dublin. Recent engagements include Schubert’s “Die Schöne Müllerin” in his hometown of Enniskillen, Northern Ireland.

As an ensemble singer, Andrew has been a Lay Singer in Llandaff Cathedral (Cardiff), and sang in the classical cabaret group, "All That Malarkey". Andrew is an artist with the company, “The Lost Chord”, performing in care homes, with the slogan, “Where words fail, music speaks.”

Andrew was the 2017 winner of the Forde Taylor prize for Gilbert & Sullivan at the Feis Ceoil (Dublin) and the E.A Redman prize for German Lieder performance at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Andrew is grateful for the loyal support from The Fermanagh Trust, The Viola Westminster Bursary, The Joan Trimble Award and Mr Christopher Ball.
